Jukembayev collides with Roldan, Martinez faces Thompson, Waterman battles Hackett for WBA regional title

ProBox TV’s popular Wednesday Night Fights series returns next week on September 20. An international four fight card hits the free-to-air platform from Plant City, Florida.

The evening’s main event will see Kazakhstan’s Batyrzhan Jukembayev (20-1, 16 KOs) collide with Argentina’s Hugo Alberto Roldan (22-1-1, 7 KOs) in the super lightweight division over 10 rounds. Canadian based southpaw, Jukembayev comes off two consecutive knockout victories following a lone career defeat to Subriel Matias. Roldan was last in action against Jose Hugo Acevedo in February winning a WBA regional title by unanimous-decision.

The chief support sees the return of Guatemalan superstar Lester Martinez (16-0, 14 KOs) in a 10 round duel at super middleweight with the Las Vegas based Lionell Thompson (22-5, 12 KOs). Martinez dispatched of Lucas de Abreu on ProBox TV just two months ago. Thompson’s last fight saw him pick up a points victory over former world title challenger Jose Uzcategui, but has seen a large part of inactivity in his career since.

The WBA Inter-Continental light heavyweight title will be on the line when Australia’s Clay Waterman (11-0, 8 KOs) clashes with Canada’s Kareem Hackett (11-0, 6 KOs). Someone’s 0 will have to go in the 10 round title fight. Queensland’s Waterman comes off a victorious American debut against the undefeated Kenmon Evans three months ago in Verona. Toronto’s Hackett knocked out Christian Thomas in Los Angeles this past May.

Ismael Villarreal(12-1, 8 KOs) locks horns with John David Martinez (19-2, 16 KOs) at super welterweight, the bout scheduled for 8 rounds. Villarreal suffered a career lone defeat in his last outing against Ardreal Holmes Jr in Topeka this past February. Martinez is undefeated in eight fights and four years. He comes off a points victory over Francisco Fuentes two months ago.

The event will be available FREE-TO-AIR worldwide on and on ProBox TV’s YouTube.
